Slow-Cooker Cajun Dirty Rice

A common mistake in cooking rice from scratch is to add too much liquid, which can make it gummy. There's not a lot of liquid in this recipe to start with, but the tomatoes and vegetables produce just enough to steam the rice.

Serve this with a hot pone of cornbread for a quick delicious meal.
